This paper gives the results of cost studies made to determine the most economical size and type of boiler and turbogenerator unit to be used in a new generating station for the Consolidated Edison Company of New York, Incorporated.

Related factors were the number and type of feedwater heaters and alternate arrangements of boiler feed pumps.
